I've already used the "storm cloud with eyes" motif in my comic Sometimes I Think About You At Night, but here I am using it again. I guess I just like clouds with eyes.

A twenty-four page comic about lost bears, upbeat coworkers, early sunsets, new constellations, rooftops, and anxiety. It's inked, edited, scanned and laid out, so I should have it run off pretty soon. I wanted to have it done before FLUKE, but it would have looked rushed. As it is, the comic was an exercise with inking as fast and loosely as I can without it looking like I didn't have my heart in it, so trying to reach an arbitrary deadline would've taken the fun out of inking the last half. Midways through the story, the sun sets before lunchtime, so there's a lot of dark panels which I found exciting to ink. Lots of shadows, night skies, dark buildings and such.

Athens, Georgia's mini-comics and zine festival FLUKE is happening at the 40 Watt Club this Saturday from 11:00am - 6:00pm. This is the cover I did for the mini-comics anthology that will be available at the show. I hope you, yes you, can make it down and see everyone exhibiting their comics, zines, and various crafts. We'd love to see you.

Currently working on a 25 page story entitled "The Grizzly", which will probably be printed in Big Deal Comics & Stories #13. Or maybe I'll put the whole thing online and not kill any trees or waste anyone's time at the copy shop. We'll see. I've lettered it and penciled in stick figures and blobby backgrounds and then inking directly over that as fast as I can, trying to capture the looseness that I do in my sketchbooks which I always wind up liking better than the work I plan out the most.
